To me, few songs capture the essence of the Dead quite like Tons Of Steel, Samba In the Rain, and You Ain't Woman Enough.

All sorts of songs come to mind and I have trouble picking any one. Though, there are some I could eliminate, like pretty much any Donna or Brent song (sorry-I think they both added a lot, and their songs showed how far they could reach, but never quintessential). Perhaps much of what I would consider is governed by the time I was going to shows, but in the end, forced to pick, I'd probably say

St. Stephen

But seriously...

I love all those songs (who wouldn't?)

I gotta throw in Eyes of the World. Maybe I can't hear right but that song covers a lot of ground and they played it lots of different ways. It could be jammy, jazzy, earthy, slushy, gooey, gold, silver or steel. They played it how that felt like.

For first setters I totally agree with BEW and ROR. Killer songs.

Gotta give it to China-Rider too.
